Article by Christian A., on June 11, 2014

Mercedes-Benz revealed today new teaser images with the upcoming 2015 Mercedes-AMG GT in its Driving Performance magazine. The photos show a camouflaged Mercedes-AMG GT and according to the magazine, the vehicle features a muscular, never ending front, just like the SLS AMG.

Moreover, the article in the magazine says that the upcoming Mercedes-AMG GT will ride on an aluminum space frame in order to be superlight. Although it wasn’t confirmed yet, the Mercedes-AMG GT is expected to use a twin-turbo V8 engine that will deliver around 400 hp in the base version, 500 hp in the most powerful version and 570 hp in the Black Series version.

The new twin-turbo V8 engine will replace the naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8 that powers the SLS AMG as well as the 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 that powers most of the current AMG models. The engine will be mated to the AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission that delivers the power to the rear wheels.

According to several sources, the 2015 Mercedes-AMG GT will accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 4.0 seconds, while top speed will be in excess of 300 km/h or 186 mph.

The all-new Mercedes-AMG GT is expected to take on the Porsche 911, a very competitive segment. The new sports car will arrive at the 2014 Paris Motor Show and will hit the dealerships in March 2015.
